A Trip in the Past in Las Casas, Bataan

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is sure beautiful to be the new backdrop of your new profile pic or Instagram post. But this place is more than what a camera can capture. What you’ll see here is beyond what you’ve studied in your history books in school. I’ve used to see houses to be just an infrastracture but what I didn’t knew is that houses, like books, can tell stories.

The drive to Bagac, Bataan is 3-4 hours and must be extra careful for the path is steep and zigzag. I was surprised that their basic rate is already 999 pesos from the 600 pesos last year.  The 999 pesos entitles you to the amenities such as the beach and pool, welcome drink, a wet towel and walking tour. I advised you to go early, if you’ll avail the day tour package, to be able to enjoy the pool and beach after the walking tour. The church inside also holds masses every Sunday.

Las Casas will make you fall in love with her that you can’t turn off your camera. But please despite all the triggered photography lust, join the 1 hour walk tour. They offer it every hour with the starting point in the reception area. I promise you that it’s not like your HEKASI lecture in school. Our tour guide is witty and approachable and he interacts with us. It is also in this tour that you’ll learn the different TRUE stories of the houses they restore. It quite informative but more of entertaining.

Las Casas doesn’t just offer houses with it’s own tales. They also have their own restaurant and bakery for your tummy. In Fotografia de la Escolta, you can have your photos taken complete with costumes. And my favorite is the game room that offers different entertainment like billiards, darts & chess. A wedding just finished the night before we got here and some their designs are still not removed. It’s actually a nice place to get married.

Nostalgic Cobblestone path leading to the fountain

Walking along the cobblestone street, with caruajes and houses older than you, made me nostalgic and intrigued of the life in the 19th century. I may not know the answer but Las Casas surely did made feel I lived back then, minus the Spaniards of course.

The place is continually expanding and I would like to come back someday to experience their hotel packages.

    Hi Da,

    Yes, it’s worth going back. I heard there’s a tram and boat tour already. Just my Samsung Note smartphone and with the power of vsco and snapseed. 🙂

Hi! I like the whole aesthetic of your blog. But please proofread before posting because there are a lot of grammar lapses. I adore all the pictures and how you show the place through this blog. Don’t take this as a hate comment. I really like your blog I’d be happy to offer my proofreading services for a fair amount, just email me. I’ll be going to this place in August and your post just made me more excited! Keep up the good work. 🙂

I’ve been reading such great reviews about this place. I’ve always been fascinated with the olden times and was actually excited when you mentioned that you can actually have your picture taken with matching customes! haha! For the day trip though, does it include access to all the houses? Thank you in advance for your answer 🙂

    We have the same fascination thats why I don’t mind going back here again soon. Yes, you’ll have access to all the houses they rebuild except of course to the houses they made into rooms for overnight guest.

I would love to visit this place. Quaint and historical places are very interesting to visit. You’ll always learn a thing or two more than the lovely photographs itself..
